Budgeting is one of the most important aspects of home building. For clients, it can sometimes seem stressful and intimidating. We promise your custom home building goals are achievable, and we’re here to help. Keep reading for budgeting tips, tricks, and to learn what Brock Builders does to ensure our customers stay within their budget.
There are many ways you can save money to build your custom home. Decide early on a goal for your down payment, and what percentage of that you’d like to start with. Shooting as high as 20 percent can be helpful in the long run. After that goal is set, make sure you are putting your money into a savings account that gathers as much interest as it can. Many people open an account specifically for their home building funds, which is an excellent option.
Next, go over your current monthly budget with a fine-toothed comb. Identify any extra expenses you could eliminate, like subscriptions or dining out. Instead, start putting that money into your house savings.
Lastly, the builder you choose to work with can make or break your home building budget. Brock Builders wants our clients to be comfortable in every way, including financially. As a formerly licensed Certified Public Accountant, our owner, Chris Brock, takes your budget seriously. We prioritize energy efficiency, which will save you money in the long run. Brock Builders also works with you to ensure your project stays on budget by scheduling regular meetings, check-ins, and following the American Institute of Architects industry standard contract.
